    Okay let me see what I can come up with about a permanent location. BTW, speaking of permanent locations: I'm going to have to move them. Right now the plan was in a screened in porch with only about 3 hours of early morning sun, with a ceiling fan running. The expected temps have gone up. Any...

    shopping Looking for consensus on Tomatogrowers chinenses?

    Over the years I've used tomatogrowers.com for tomato and pepper seeds, and I've never been disappointed. I've noticed these C. chinense types that have been offered by them and I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with them? Note that I acquired seeds for an orange Scotch Bonnet many...

    nutrients Do's and Dont's of Feeding the Soil?

    @Pepper-Guru @stickman thank you for the advice! Pepper-Guru I usually do this, but it was advised by my cooperative extension to not add any more compost to the soil because of how rich in nutrients it already was. I'm going to follow your advice, theirs didn't make sense to me. There are...

    nutrients Do's and Dont's of Feeding the Soil?

    I've been spinning my wheels for a few days regarding properly building and maintaining the appropriate soil biota for healthy growth. I've used chemical fertilizers in the past as well as organic fertilizers, compost, and fish/seaweed emulsions. My peppers grew very well until a few years ago...

    favorite What's your favorite hot sauce?

    I'm typically chasing more taste experiences than heat, and I really like to make my own stuff from the garden, but here are some of my staples: Nando's Peri Peri-nice heat, citrusy and versatile. Make a shrimp scampi or a fish dish with this one-wow! Walkerswood Scotch Bonnet-keeps the...

    pubescens Hottest Capsicum pubescens ?? anyone know ??

    Good luck, I hope that you get many! This is my first year growing them, so I can't report any results growing in-ground. I'm trying 3 in 7-gallon grow bags, and 3 in 5-gallon plastic pots. I'll keep you posted on how well they grow in each!

    favorite What is your favorite pepper to pickle?

    Chinenses in general are my favorites to pickle, and I like to rotate types between yellow scotch bonnets, fatalii, chocolate scotch bonnets/Jamaican hot chocolates, and Caribbean red/Antillais caribbean habaneros. It's noteworthy that the yellow scotch bonnets pickled in the unripe green stage...

    nutrients Considering Incorporating Vermicompost for Peppers, Other Vegetables, Figs, etc.

    I've been cold composting for about 8 years for my garden vegetables, and frankly the return that I'm getting is not as great as I'd originally hoped for. I recently started looking into vermicomposting, and the more I read about it, the more I like the idea of incorporating it. For those of you...

    harvesting What pepper are you most excited about this season?

    My Rocotos. This is my first year growing them and I haven't been this excited about growing peppers since I started back in 2003! I've got 3 types going this year: Rocoto de Seda, Rocoto Turbo, and Ecuadorian Red PFH. I'm also excited about trying sugar rush peach for the first time, and...

    baccatum What's the consensus on Sugar Rush Peach?

    Good luck with them! I think the only C. frutescens that I've grown was Tabasco. That's another species that I haven't explored. That's great to know. I'm really looking forward to trying them. What was your seed source? Mine came from Baker Creek.
